If you have suffered an injury as the result of an accident, it is not unusual to feel frightened and uncertain. You might be experiencing a significant amount of pain as you do your best to try to heal.
Between hospitalizations, doctor appointments, surgeries, physical therapy, and rehab, an injury victim’s days can usually include extreme stress. To make matters worse, you know the medical bills are going to be substantial.
If another person was responsible for your personal injury, they should be held accountable for your costs. You deserve compensation for the damages you have suffered. An experienced personal injury lawyer in Bristol can help.
At The Law Offices of Craig A. Altman, our lawyers focus on personal injury cases. We value attorney-client relationships, and are there for our clients every step of the way. We will carefully listen to and understand your concerns, make you aware of your legal options, help you get through the fear and stress that often follows an injury, and fight aggressively for the compensation you deserve.
We view our clients as a branch of our own family. That is why we take the outcome of your personal injury claim as seriously as you do. Our attorneys do not charge an hourly rate for our time, but for results only – which is why we do not collect a dollar until we recover compensation for you.

A personal injury case consists of many moving parts. It can involve different practice areas of law, and the damages we seek on your behalf can vary. Most of our clients end up winning compensation for several types of losses, both economic and non-economic.
Once we begin investigating your injury, we can estimate a monetary value that your claim is worth. It could include a few or even all of the following damages.
In addition to your current injury-related medical costs, you may also be entitled to any costs we anticipate that you will incur in the future—potentially for the rest of your life.
You might be able to win compensation to cover the wages you lost due to missed work to recover from your injury. If your capacity to earn a living has decreased on a long-term basis, our trial lawyers can win additional compensation to cover the difference.
Many of our clients also win non-economic damages, such as for pain and suffering or emotional distress. These are considered non-economic damages, as they do not compensate the injured people for specific monetary losses. That said, you still deserve compensation for the pain and suffering you have experienced.
We can pursue punitive damages if the party responsible for the incident was not only negligent, but reckless or malicious in their actions. For instance, if you were in an auto accident with a driver who was drag racing, you may be eligible for punitive damages.
The personal injury lawyers at The Law Offices of Craig A. Altman can help you no matter how your injury occurred. Whether it was the result of a common type of accident, like a car crash, or it was something unusual that hurt you, we want to get the bottom of the situation and help you in every way we can.
Many of our personal injury clients were involved in car accidents. Oftentimes, car accident victims suffer serious injuries, including spinal and head trauma, as well as extensive property damage.
If you suffered injuries in a car crash or even a truck accident, motorcycle accident, or pedestrian accident – our attorneys take on the responsible parties and the insurance companies and help you obtain full compensation.
Premises liability refers to injuries that occur on another person’s property. Typically, slip and fall accidents fall under the umbrella of premises liability law.
It is the property owners and managers’ duty to care for guests. They must ensure that their property is kept free from hazards and must immediately address any dangerous condition that presents itself. However, in the meantime, they must take immediate steps to shield guests from the hazardous condition and warn them of its presence.
For example, if a massive pothole develops in a homeowner’s driveway, they should implement physical barriers in addition to putting up warning signs until they can repair the problem. If not, they could be responsible for any injuries that occur as a result of the pothole.
If you have suffered an injury due to a hazard on someone else’s property, our trial attorneys can hold the owner or manager responsible for your damages.
When there is a defect or flaw in a consumer product, such as a toaster or even a hoverboard, and it causes injury, we can go after the manufacturer for damages through a product liability claim. Even if the manufacturer did not necessarily demonstrate negligence, we can still seek compensation. The law requires us to prove two things:
We make sure you get the compensation you deserve in a defective product claim.
If your personal injury occurred under the care of a physician or in a medical facility, we can seek damages from both the the doctor and the facility. We have won substantial medical malpractice settlements for many clients in the Bristol, PA area.
Even if your injury does not fall into one of the categories mentioned above, we want to help. The personal injury and accident attorneys at the Law Firm of Craig A. Altman have years of experience practicing personal injury in Pennsylvania, and know the laws often vary depending on your location – whether it be Miami, Florida, Providence, Rhode Island – or anywhere else in the United States.

Bristol Township is an exciting and diverse area, with a history marked by industrial development and the hard-working perseverance of its inhabitants. With a population of 54, 582, Bristol is ranked #13 of the largest municipalities in Pennsylvania.
Bristol has long been an easily accessible location, which led to its prominence in U.S. history as a major transportation hub, and remains so, being a stop along SEPTA’s Regional Rail, Line 4. There are also two airports and five Amtrak stations within a 30-mile radius of the town.
Situated in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, Bristol Borough was established in 1681 when a man named Samuel Clift set up a ferry across the Delaware River and prepared the area to become a prominent transportation hub.
Soon after the establishment of the ferry, a petition was passed naming Bristol a market town, and making it the third province in the area, following Chester and Philadelphia.
The town’s significance increased over time as its role as a major transportation center grew significantly. The location along the river contributed to the town’s success in rebounding after a “Great Fire” in 1724 that devastated many of the original constructions in the town.
Bristol also became a station on the stage line from Philadelphia to New York. As such, it benefitted from the construction of an elegant hotel, formerly known as the Delaware House (now referred to as The Fountain House), and drew the attention of the social elite by being recognized as the premier spa in the United States, between the 1780s and 1820s.
As more of the upper-class citizens created elaborate residences in the area, the real estate market boomed, primarily from those seeking industrial properties along the Delaware River.
Though they suffered immensely when the canal outlet lock in New Hope created a quicker route between Philadelphia and New York, Bristol continued to thrive, as it became an industrial center for rolling mills, textile mills, and carpet mills.
With the growing industry, workers flocked to the area, and several housing endeavors, identifiable today as red brick row homes throughout the region, was completed to provide dwelling places for the working class and middle-class citizens who lived in the area.
There are so many things to do in Bristol Pennsylvania. Be sure to check out some of the area’s highlights, including:
Train enthusiasts should take the fast track to Trainpops Attic, a specialty shop appropriately located in a town with a history in the transportation industry.
